All of the war news does not come from Europe, some of It conies from Camden, where the clan of Pellicoff Is staunchly resisting the overwhelming forces of the Pennsylvania Railroad la a war over property rights. Latest ad vices from the front show that the railroad achieved a slight advantage last night when they stormed the Telll- I coff's Intrenched position In a series o' postholes, captured It and creeled a strong fortification of posts In the enemy's territory. Thej did not follow up their advantage, however, and It Is f enld that although both sides arc guard ing against offensive movements, media- , lion by tho courts will finally be re- . sorted to to settle the battle. I The Pellicoff forces arc under the com- j mand of B. Pellicoff. He Is ably as sisted by D. relllcoff, Jr.; Sirs. Fanny Dell nnd Miss Ethel Pellicoff, daughters or u Pellicoff, wlille ofrectfvo scout duty i3 being done by the commander's son-in-law and nephew. The rank and file of the Pellicoff forces Is composed of cm plo.vos of the Pellicoff coal yard, at Twelfth street and Atlantic avenue, which wns attacked by n host of Penn slvanla Rniltoad workmen, who stole a. mireh on their opponent at 4 o'clock osterday morning, attacked tho Pelli coff olliee and tore away some two or three feet from the end of tho building, which, they said, encroached on the rail loatl property. The concrete blocks were replaced with a wooden partition by tho attacking party. BOMBARDMENT AWAKENS SLEEPER. The first warning of the enemv's ad vance received by the clan of Pellicoff was when Mrs. Fanny Hell, who lives net to the coal yard, was nwkaened by the sound of the walls of the fortress fnlling under the violent bombaidinent of the lallroad's sledges She oulcklv notified her husband of the attack and ' then telephoned to B. Pellicoff, whoso headquarters are at 1134 Princess avenue I The latter effected a rapid mobilization I of his forces, but arrived on the teene j too late to save the main fortress the j office. He then deployed his forces on ' what ne alleges to be the frontier of his I tcrritoiv, and prepared to resist the I enemv's Invasion.

Other railroads thtoughout the country which have long tunnels on their right-of-way hove placed large blowers In them which keep them clear of nil gas, or at least keep It down to a minimum, so that If a train becomes stalled In the tunnel passengei h will be In no danger of as phyxiation.

The court reserved decision at the con clusion of the urguincnt today. Assistant City Solicitor Goidon defended the action of the Civil Service Commissioners.
